Feeling a little blue today. I just got back from calling hours for my uncle. He was my dad's youngest brother and he was always a part of our family celebrations in the past several years because his own kids lived out of state. It was nice to have someone from that generation at all of our holiday meals, even if it couldn't be our own parents. Losing him makes me feel like I lost the last real connection to my dad and it's hard, like losing two of them at once, or losing dad all over again. Even Casper feels somber.
